The Army of of Baden 1806-14


In 1806, on signing the Treaty of the Confederation of the Rhine, sixteen German states joined in a confederation with Napoleon as its "protector". The Confederation was above all a military alliance: the members had to maintain substantial armies for mutual defense and supply France with large numbers of military personnel. In return for their cooperation some state rulers were given higher statuses: The Electorate of Baden, one of the founder members of the confederation was made into a Grand Duchy and despite the states close links with Prussia and Russia remained one of Napoleon's staunchest allies from 1806 to 1813.

The Army of the Grand Duchy of Baden was previously looked at an earlier book published in the 1970s  which has been out of print since 1984.  This new e-book volume has been completely revised and updated and is illustrated with all new line drawings and colour illustrations, from contemporary and modern sources.

130 pages   Colour illustrations and line drawings.
